An Easy Coach Bus Transporting KNEC Examiners involved in an accident Along Gilgil Weigh Bridge
Several people have been injured after a bus belonging to easy coach company flipped along Gilgil Weigh Bridge.
The accident which occurred this morning, involved KNEC contracted professionals, who were heading to various marking centres in Nairobi to participate in this year’s KCSE marking exercise. Other passengers were also on board although they were few in number compared to the examiners.
Casualties have been recorded but So far, no fatalities have been recorded. The victims who are in critical condition, whose number is yet to be determined, have been rushed to a Nakuru hospital.
The management of easy coach company limited is yet to release another bus to aid the survivors of the accident to complete their journey.
Though Nairobi is among the five regions where entry or exit movement has been restricted, the examiners had travel passes, which were given to them by the deputy county commissioners. This was one of the conditions given by TSC and the ministry of education to enhance easy movement of the professional to the marking centres.
The examiners who would take part in the marking exercise were to team up based on their destinations and departure days, and book a common bus to Nairobi.
The marking exercise is already on, with most centers having completed coordination of marking schemes and marking of dummies. Centres which have not begun live marking are expected to begin tomorrow or on Monday, upon completion of their dummies. NEXT
